War of 1812 (September 1876)

An odd bit — the Battle of Lake Champlain, September 11, 1812, was observed in the village (but little was done for the national centennial to observe the building of the first naval fleet in our harbor in 1776) with 7,000 people, eight bands, fire company and contests.
